Did you know Strathmore’s iconic thistle symbol is now incorporated into every 400 Series pad cover in some way, shape or form? It may resemble our circular thistle logo or it may be a literal interpretation of the thistle plant. Either way..., you can be sure to find it represented some way!
The thistle has been a symbol of excellence in art papers from Strathmore's early beginnings. In fact, the Strathmore name and thistle originated in the late 1800's when our founder, Horace Moses, visited the Valley of Strathmore in Scotland and was inspired by the beauty of the thistle in full bloom.
Grab your brown or green pad and see if you can find the thistle!
